Club In The Hub
Copy of Fall 2020
Hey Nyree, heres some of my notes:
- for solo: emma- i saw mid space, slow time, breath
-for solo: kit- i saw outward reach, full space, and fast time
-maybe play with these a bit more because the opposition is effective
Both of them together on the rewatch really made me interested in seeing levels, facing, and interaction between the two! the moments where they overlap like the pause are really effective, so finding more moments they can meet on and then separate again can really draw folks in! to really sell it though I would establish characters for these people even if they're just quality words- like Kit being more near-reach and strong and Emma being more far-reach and sustainted- and then finding where they might be able to overlap. also playing more with timing and repetition! while these two don't necessarily have to be opposites, playing into repeating things with increasing speed or just realllllyyyy dragging something out for ten years can prevent it from becoming too flat. you've got two dancers who have a very different set of strengths but really complement one another so utilizing those to your fullest extent and taking feedback from them both as individuals and as people who are already acquainted with each other's movement is what I think will really sell this piece. don't be afraid to take full advantage of that!! it doesn't seem like you really need to create any other long strings of choreography for the time being because playing with what you have is already a really solid foundation!
Nyree, you are off to a wonderful start with the amount of material you've created so far! Each solo has different qualities that can contrast but also compliment each other in many ways. Maybe present each as a solo but then maybe later in the piece, bring back parts of their solos and create a duet, that could be very effective!
Hi Nyree! These solos as a duet was extremely powerful and I feel it would be really cool if you played with that idea more. Keep an eye on out for releasing certain body parts on specific movements to really make it more effective. For example, when Emma does a slight back bend. I also think playing and manipulating the tutting section in Kit's solo would be really effective. Try playing with the ideas of fast and slow, levels, directions, and qualities. I'm excited to see the progress of this piece!
